Working on Tone Quality

It's all about the Air
There is one aspect of performing on a woodwind or brass instrument that never changes and is frequently the root cause of players not being able to perform to their best abilities.  From beginning band students to the very advanced, musicians can be so distracted by the mechanical & technical aspects of playing and performing that they forget to use enough air.   At the least, lacking air support creates tone quality, response and intonation difficulties.  All wind instruments need the proper “fuel” to operate correctly and improvements are noticeable immediately when the aspect of air support is recognized and properly implemented.
